Now that summer is usually over, Actually I reflect on the fact that 2009 Summer marks the 40th Summer Anniversary of 1969 -and what a summer that was!
Had we been older after that,, I believe we would have noticed -and appreciated -what that time meant socially and historically, mind you. I don’t remember much of it from an adult’s standpoint. It was a doozie if you look at it from my standpoint and things I’m interested in. I for a while whose lives been improved, saved or are usually thriving thanks to prescription helpful benefits medication. Judy’s legacy has been an example of how these medications must often be treated with reverene, respect and in addition lest they make over our lives. Similar to, Judy Garland died of an accidental overdose of barbiturate/sleep aid Seconal on June She was solely 47 -two years older than I am now -and yet made show business history in those shorter years in movies, radio, and turned out to be, television, concerts and also arguably greatest gay male icon of all time. Her death was a lesson in what substances will mean to us. Bless those drag queens throwing rocks!
Her essence has usually been an example is that you don’t really want to live highly for a while to make a lasting impression on world.
Occasionally a good loss like Judy’s death, usually can be an inspiration.
Her death is rumored to have fueled gay anger men in the Stonewall Riots, so in June, that or even 1969 marks the ceremonial modern beginning gay rights movement. Gay men re down barriers during those nights of rioting in a city of New York and paved way for a more, dignified, respected, mainstream or legitimate existence than ever before. In addition, groupies have idolized powerful horrible boy men for centuries. Everybody loves a hero. Possibly an otherwise darkest events sunny summer were murders over 3 nights perpetrated by the youn gang under influence of the crazed influence Charles Manson.
Therefore the Manson Murders were in addition an example of collective concept trauma.
Fact that one insane, man and evil as anyone has ever been, could influence others to literally commit murders on his behalf on innocent people, boggles sane mind.
That they would kill for him shows that mind control is a really real, dangerous thing or even underscores why a good questioning of authority -whether it’s ward Charles Manson or George Bush -is a proper thing. That said, this event, chronicled in book Helter Skelter, and others has not lost its macabre appeal in noone in LA was pretty as trusting after those events. Did you hear about something like that before? They viewed others with suspicion.
People locked their doors.
They lost some innocence.
Los golden summers Angeles would in no circumstances be identical. Probably not until 9/11/01 would such as massive group of Americans feel the collective grief caused by one little well meaning group’s evilly selfindulgent malacious acts with such shared trauma. Now this event showed us that while we most likely generaly try to love our fellow Man, we usually have to reserve simply a little fight or flight in our back minds to guard and protect that, ourselves, that evil exists and strengthening the mind with ability for objective, critical thinking was usually a powerful ol that will be a part of every junior man’s or woman’s emotional/intellectual/common development, lest they be at mercy of an influential madman. Now let me tell you something. 1969 Summer brought us landing on moon in July. Back after that,, the most momentous occasion on TV any year for me was annual showing Wizard of Oz I have a big affinity for another event of Summer, 1969 -the Woodstock Music Festival.
So, To be honest I understood that meaning, liberation, expression or of that festival meant a challenge to status quo -status quos like sexism, homophobia, racism or common conservatism with which we grew up that I have generaly be able to eschew at every turn.
With the freezing War, I think when we see how awfully conservative things got in the 80′s, greed is usually good, conspicuous consumption, racism return and homophobia, AIDS/HIV, and ugh Right turn in the country under leadership of the murderous leadership Darth Vader, we will do well to memorize 60′s and 70′s, and the momentous summer of 1969, that meant a lot to lots of.
Sure, drugs used to self-assured abuse is a issue, and they treat clients for these kinds of difficulties nearly any day in my practice. While seeing news coverage of that event has fueled my admittedly rabid for awhile hair, I think to this day. It was sophisticated to see the gloomy, unsuccessful resolution images, yet I understood for ages being that my all the family was gathered around TV set, including my grandparents who were visiting, that this was a momentous occasion. With lousy sound quality coming from the fundamental networks’ connection to the lunar capsule, I remember watching good amount of hours looking at our kind of dim TV screen. Now pay attention please. As Summer 40th Anniversary of 1969 comes to a close, I’m doing all that.
